Melvin extended

Well, I ended up pretty busy yesterday. Nice game played yesterday. Hell, Gonzo actually hit a homer. Crazy. What's even crazier is the 2 year deal the Diamondbacks have made with the manager, Bob Melvin.

My take on thiis? A bit of a mixed bag. Byrnes and Melvin reportedly have a good working relationship, and as long as Josh is making the right moves, and Bob carries them out accordingly, I'm fine. Most of the issues I have with Melvin are the way he handles his pitchers, often being prone to a slow hook, and over-using releivers. The way he's handled rookie position players irks me, considering the youth-based direction this team is headed.

Our best bet is that Melvin become's Arizona version of Oakland's Ken Macha.
